GABLES WINE & WORDS



My name is Patrick Alexander and for the past thirty plus years I have lived in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida where, among other things, I teach wine appreciation classes – hence the name of this site, GablesWine.com.

In addition to teaching classes on wine, I have also written a book about wine The Booklovers’ Guide to Wine. From time to time I also post to my wine related blog.

My additional books include three novels set in a fictionalized, and not very well disguised, Coral Gables – entitled The Greenhaven Trilogy.

My first book, back in 2007, was a study of the French novelist Marcel Proust, Marcel Proust’s Search for Lost Time, and I am currently working on a new book comparing Proust’s seven volume novel In Search of Lost Time, with Anthony Powell’s twelve volume novel A Dance to the Music of Time. It's proving rather a mammoth task and I’m not sure when it will be finished.

A full list of my books is available at my Amazon author’s page.

When not writing or teaching, I conduct historic tours for the Coral Gables Museum and the historic Biltmore Hotel.
